We are looking forward to seeing as many of you as we possibly can this year at GenCon. To further that goal our panels and games will charge the bare minimum or be free. You all have been so supportive and generous to us and our shows over the year that we all feel GenCon is our time to give back to you.
Star Trek Adventures RPG

Improv Workshop for Advanced Roleplaying
7 – 8:30pm

An audience participation game where we split the audience up into smaller groups and they play members trapped in a “Saw” type room. Each participant rolls to make choices to get out of that room within a certain time. They can work as a group or an individual. Certain doors will lead you to combine with other groups or will lead you astray, some will have traps (perception and insight checks are a must). If you die in game you become a lost soul that can affect the game play for living players. Can anyone escape?
